Author Interviews

Do others view your work as you do? Does it ever seem as though some parents see you more as a babysitter than a professional caregiver and business owner? How can you change their minds?

Family child care homes provide much-needed, quality care for hundreds of thousands of children every day. Now you can remove the term "babysitter" from your job description and obtain the satisfaction, appreciation, and lasting success you deserve.

From Babysitter to Business Owner offers tried-and-true strategies for implementing business practices in the home day care environment. Each of the eight chapters in this indispensable guide gives you insight into an important aspect of fine-tuning your family child care business. The book covers topics including:

• selecting new clients and retaining valued clients
• developing and using a thorough parent handbook
• selecting an appropriate and manageable curriculum
• creating work spaces in your home
• setting long-term personal and business goals

Chapters also contain helpful and inspirational sidebars, lists of suggested resources, and a "3 Things to Do Today" checklist.

Practical and easy to read, From Babysitter to Business Owner has everything home day care providers need to make their business—and their career—a success.

Patricia Dischler has operated Patty Cake Preschool in Prairie DuSac, Wisconsin, for over 15 years.
